About This Charity
The Antigonish Women's Centre & Sexual Assault Services Association is an independent, feminist, community-based organization. We provide information, support services and programs for women of all ages and backgrounds in an environment that is sensitive to women’s needs. We recognize and address issues of concern to women and their families through community development, education and research. We work together with women in our community to create a just equitable society.
About Our Charity
Women and adolescent girls access our Women's Centre for information, one-to-one support and advocacy for a wide range of issues and concerns -- poverty, violence and abuse, sexual assault, mental and emotional health, affordable housing, parenting, social and familial relationships, separation and divorce, and women's rights and entitlements. We offer community-based programs that include a women's health clinic, a sexual assualt nurse examiner (SANE) program, support groups for adult survivors of sexual trauma, an in-school healthy relationships program for grade nine students, and a problem-solving skills development program for adolescent girls. We are working with our community on community health impact assessment, a poverty reduction strategy, food security and strengthening services for children and youth. We are involved at the provincial level with social policy advocacy focussed on poverty and violence against women.
